The minister of international trade diversification (French: ministre de la diversification du commerce international) is former minister of the Crown position in the Canadian Cabinet. The minister had responsibility for the international trade portfolio and was one of the three ministers (along with the minister of foreign affairs and the minister of international development and la Francophonie) who lead the Canadian foreign ministry, Global Affairs Canada.

History

The post was first established in 1983 as the minister for international trade. This title changed to minister of international trade under Prime Minister Paul Martin when he split the former Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. On 18 July 2018, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau changed the title to minister of international trade diversification and appointed Jim Carr the new minister.[6] The position is no longer in use following the 2019 federal election; the duties of the position have been absorbed by the minister of small business, export promotion and international trade.
